For a limited time, Amazon’s Kindle ereader is on sale for just $59. The price has been $79 for quite a while, and previously was priced even higher. According to Amazon, this is National Reading Month, which is their reason for the promotion.

The advantage of a regular Kindle is that basically you limit the device to exclusively read book content. You won’t need to deal with other settings that would ordinarily need to be dealt with on an iPad or other tablet. This makes it simpler and easier to use, and to access the material on it, probably ideal for those who prefer just to read if taking some device out with them. Another advantage would be its lighter when carrying around or holding when you head out.
Of course, Amazon currently does have more advanced Kindle devices that can do more or are more aesthetically pleasing, such as their PaperWhite Kindle, if people prefer those.
